Further support for parents of children with SEND during Covid-19
We know that our ability to support our children with Special Educational Needs has been severely impacted by Covid-19. We hope that the steps and links below will help you find support which may aid you during this difficult time.
Fill in a form on the Starting Well (https://www.startingwellworcs.nhs.uk/support-during-covid19) or Here2Help (http://www.worcestershire.gov.uk/here2help) websites or ring them. You will be able to arrange a one-off advice session about your child’s behaviour, anxiety and emotional wellbeing.
Visit the Speech and Language COVID-19 webpage (www.hacw.nhs.uk/sltcovid19) for lots of up to date social stories, visual timetables and resources to help with your child’s anxiety.
More resources and advice are available at (https://www.hacw.nhs.uk/childrens-speech-and-language-resources/) and on Facebook, Instagram (search for ‘Worcestershire Speech and Language Therapy’) and Twitter (SLT_worcs).
You can also email WHCNHS.email@example.com and a member of the team will arrange a time to give you specific advice about your child’s behaviour, communication or anxiety.
Contact your child’s School Health Nurse (through the school) or Special School Nurse (at WHCNHS.firstname.lastname@example.org)
Contact a professional who is working with you already such as a Community Paediatrician, CAMHS/LD CAMHS worker or Speech and Language Therapist.
